In recent years, throughout Europe, increasing concerns have been raised about the relocation of production and jobs. What is the extent of relocation and what are its qualitative impacts? Away from the spotlight of individual cases and anecdotal evidence, `relocation`, proves to be a complex phenomenon. The aim of this book is to explore the complexity of the new forms of international division of labour within the enlarged EU. To understand how these complex processes work, regional considerations and sector-specific features are analysed along with the impact on employment. On the basis of the findings implications for trade union strategies are drawn out in the concluding chapter.
